Development represents a strategic goal for every country of the world. But it also is a “complicated issue”, given the multitude of (micro and macro economic) approaches that academics and strategists have proposed for development. By this paper we consider competitiveness as measure and indicator of development – based on World Economic Forum researches and findings. This kind of approach allows us to make some (time - and space - based) comparisons – at country level and to identify some key figures – at industry level – of the world’s top transnational corporations (ranked by UNCTAD) that can be valorised by countries (and TNCs as well) on their journey through economic development and competitiveness.
